Police investigate 'millionaire' who claims to give strangers money for tax breaks

Just when 6 On Your Side investigator Tom Sussi thought he'd seen it all, along came "The Gift."

As he explained in his report, a local millionaire wanted to lower his tax burden, and along the way, help out others. In exchange for a nice tax break, he's gifting away part of his fortune, giving free money to total strangers.

Ah, but there's a catch. To be considered for The Gift, people first have to pay $150.00 upfront to cover a background check.

Does it smell fishy? That's why Columbus Police is investigating.

It's a story you have to see to believe.
